"Perm" is an interactive abstract film by Ulf Langheinrich. It was shown as part of the iCinema program of DEAF04.



The Permian Period ended with enormous lava flows which destroyed life on earth and returned matter to its primeval form. Earth's ecological system differentiated itself from countless smaller systems with new structures. PERM, an abstract interactive film, harks back to this dramatic period. A flowing stream of images is projected on the inside of a dome-shaped planetarium. A single glance in the darkness of The Dome reveals a slice of PERM's flowing primeval soup.

iCinema is an interactive projection system designed by Jeffrey Shaw and the ZKM specially as a vision of the possible future of film. The iCinema films are projected on the inside of The Dome, a nine-meter-high inflatable hemisphere.
